I have a large single sheet, and attached it to the clew like a jib, this allows me to gybe and pull around like a jib would in gybe. I have clip on pulleys as far back as I can along with deck, and run the lines to my genoa winch's.
It does help in longer downwind runs, the main problem I have run into with AS' is you can not run much closer than 20-30* of straight down wind. Best at about 130-150 or so. Otherwise, easy to fly for the most part, excepting two weeks ago in mid 20 knot breezes, then things got interesting, but being as that was the windest I had been in flying it, I am sure there were a few operator errors more than the sail itself.
